The new Greenburgh Health Center (Knollwood Road) is nearing completion. Furniture should arrive in mid December. And, the center should be open to the public in early 2013.
Judith Watson, executive director of the Greenburgh Neighborhood Health Center, gave me a tour of the new building on Friday afternoon. I was very impressed and pleased with what I saw. The building, which is across from the Greenburgh Library and next to the Social Security offices, is spectacular! Spacious. It's going to be one of the jewels of the town-something we all will be proud of. The center has some exciting initiatives planned for the community, once they open--including a children's play area in the building.
The center is being built with $12 million dollars in stimulus funds from the federal government. Our community was very lucky to receive one of the region's largest stimulus grants from the fed's. The Health Center provides excellent quality comprehensive primary health care services. For information about the Health Center visit www.greenburghhealthcenter.com. The Health Center is independent of the town and county governments and receives funding from the US Department of Health & Human Services. The Greenburgh Health Center is a satellite site of the Mount Vernon Neighborhood Health Center, Inc. The town had to approve plans for the new health center --a vote I'm proud to have cast.
The Center will continue to serve residents of Greenburgh at their current location: 330 Tarrytown Road until they move into their new building.
